Bamboo is a versatile material that can be used for a variety of applications other than commercial building. Many home remodeling television shows and interior designers are choosing bamboo as the go-to decorative piece when achieving a minimalist look. Both natural and black bamboo poles are inexpensive enhancements for contemporary settings. Here are five examples of how bamboo poles can be integrated into your living space.
- Garden Stake
Garden décor doesn’t have to be boring; bamboo poles are lightweight, flexible, and aesthetically pleasing. Use one inch poles to place in the ground at least twelve inches deep to ensure stability. Bamboo acts as a great support for heavier plants such as pepper and tomato. Tie each plant to the bamboo stalk with sturdy twine and let stand. You can also build a bamboo tripod for additional decoration.
- Kitchen storage
Get organized with bamboo kitchen storage holders for your cooking utensils. Use a chop saw to cut bamboo poles to a desired size and length. You can choose a color stain to paint on the bamboo before tying the decorative rope. Place one or two utensils in each bamboo piece to create a modern, minimalist look.
- Wall décor
Dried bamboo poles can be used as decorative art pieces throughout your home or office space. Get creative, paint or carve a unique design and position bamboo in opposing directions to add character. Bamboo poles provide an organic feel that welcomes a Zen atmosphere.
- Room divider
Use bamboo poles of all sizes and diameters to make a beautiful room divider. Build a flower box and fill with garden rocks of any color. Place the poles down at least eight inches into the rocks and turn each pole to face a different direction.
- Plant holder
Instead of leaving your plant in a plastic pot, why not transfer it into a piece of decorative bamboo? Cut bamboo at the nodes and add dirt in each individual plant holder. Attach the bamboo holders in a spiral direction and decorate with small flowers or succulents.
